Bento Lunches
Another Lunch! 
16th-Nov-2012 10:57 pm
So I made another lunch for work. Also, another cell phone pic (that's off center yay!) because I cannot find my camera for the life of me.

Rice ball (brown and white rice mixed) with veggie "shrimp" (yes that exists) in the middle, broccoli, tomato, veggie "chicken" tenders, Walnuts, pomegranate arils, more broccoli, and some steamed veggies with a little cheese.

Looks very yummy!

I've always been curious about veggie "chicken" and "shrimp." What do they taste like? I suppose a better question to ask is, have you ever tasted the real thing and, if so, what are the veggie versions like in comparison?

I didn't go veg until I was almost 16 so I have had meat before. The thing is, if you ever go out and eat faux meats, do not go into it expecting it to taste like the real deal, or you will be sorely disappointed (though the shrimp got the texture almost perfect). They have their own unique taste and texture that is what makes them awesome. Also, there is a chipotle lime version of those "chicken" tenders that makes a darned good wrap. The "chicken" is made by Gardein and the shrimp are Yves I think (not sure on that one, I have since tossed the box).

Interesting! I shall have to look into that "chicken" for sure! Thanks. :)

I love that brand, them and Morning Star Farms (though Gardein is by far my fav atm).
